Executive Summary

KnowledgeBase’s Reach - Then Teach Leadership Cohort is a diverse group of 12 professionals who will build relationships, increase capacity, and generate solutions by executing mentoring, conflict resolution, and problem solving projects.

The 2015 cohort will be chosen through a competitive application and interview process.

During 2015, members will participate in 12 project-based workshops presented by Derrick Brown (KnowledgeBase’s Principal Consultant).

Members will also contribute crowdsourced solutions to our project partners' problems.

Since 2008, our cohorts have ...

1. Produced and debuted The Now You Know History Quiz Bowl - a one-hour "Jeopardy"-styled gameshow with episodes that share the stories of 26 ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary feats.

2. Produced and debuted Bag Of Life - a small-group relationship building activity that uses randomly drawn cards containing fill-in-the-blank sentences, questions, and words that encourage transparent self-expression.

3. Produced a four-minute video to explain the work of our leadership cohort.

4. Helped a church recover its financial and membership database after its server crashed.

5. Helped a homeowner's association create an online map of surrounding communities to support its outreach effort.

6. Developed and implemented a strategy to help a school prevent iPhones from overloading the campus network.

7. Used an AM radio to show a school the sources of electromagnetic interference that made their Internet service unreliable.

8. Written and delivered 120 funding proposals to a database of foundations (that we built) in 90 days.

9. Helped a school mediate 750 student conflicts during the academic year (an average of 1 per day).

Our funding goal is $31,000.
